What our clients say about us:

We played sand soccer at the Oceanside tournament. In between games we had fun surfing. It was a great day to play sand soccer, surf and have fun with my teammates! The instructors know exactly what they’re doing and how to make the experience awesome!

Murrieta Surf Soccer Team Party

Awesome experience. Doug and his crew are great instructors and they made our experience fun and educational. We enjoyed it immensely.

Tamar Asatryan

All the way from CT to Cali to surf! We had a blast surfing with Doug and his staff. They were definitely the highlight to our vacation and a memory that will last forever. Doug was extremely patient and never gave up when I (Jen) struggled the first few tries to get on the board. Our whole family was pretty successful with his assistance. My son wants to keep surfing and continued to practice his surfing skills on a boogie board in the waves later in the day. Thanks again for being so awesome.

Jen Schnitzer

My son wanted to go to a surfing school, so I joined him. We had a great time, the instructors were awesome. My son had a great big smile on his face.

Barry Brickey

My husband and two sons (age 11 and 13) had a blast at this lesson. Doug was so helpful both before and during the lesson. He messaged with me ahead of time to make sure that everything was set up for a great experience. The small class size and personal attention that my boys received led to 3 very happy surfing dudes by the end of the lesson. I absolutely recommend San Diego Surf for anyone.

Lindsey Pruitt

Highlight of the trip! Doug did such a great job we were up and surfing with one lesson. Did not know that was possible. Thanks for the wonderful time!

Brent Lomax

Doug is AMAZING! We learned how to surf and we’re standing up on the board within an hour and continued getting better and better during the lesson! We had such a good time and it was definitely the most fun workout I’ve ever done! I recommend to anyone wanting to give surfing a try!. Having grown up in San Diego I only went surfing once before and my experience was not good! Taking a lesson from Doug at San Diego Surf changed that! While I won’t be surfing with the pros any time soon I had the most fun!

Megan Parry

Surf lessons were for my 13 year old daughter and my 11 year old son. It was my daughter’s birthday so it was an extra special day. Doug started the day with a really cool birthday cake along with a birthday song. Lessons were great and the kids had a great time. Doug and Nancy did a great job with our children and made sure they were safe the entire time. My kids had a great time.
